To the Family of Jame Toomer,
โ€œHE that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadows of the Almighty.โ€ Psalm 91:1
We, the members of Bethesda Temple I.P.A.A., wish to express our deepest regret. The Lord took one of His bravest soldiers. James Toomer was one of the brightest stars of the city of Anderson. Surely he is shining bright in the heavenly that is known to us.
Be it known that we wish that the work he has done will continue to speak for him. Our prayers continue for the immediate family, friends, and for the entire church family. If you need anything please call. (765) 649-4423.
Warm Regards,
Pastor: Bishop Robert White
Assistant Pastor: Patricia
